24 Drug Arrests Made In Boscombe

Police in Boscombe investigating drugs offences say they made 24 arrests in October 2012.

Several of these arrests were for possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.

Further arrests were for production of a Class B drug and possession with intent to supply Class B drugs.

Heroin, with an estimated street value of £6,000 as well as £15,000 in cash, was also seized which resulted in five of the arrests.

Neighbourhood Inspector Chris Weeks said:

“The arrests and seizures made during October are part of our ongoing commitment to make Boscombe safer and to make it clear that we will not tolerate drugs or drug-related activity in our town.

“We continue to receive strong support from the people of Boscombe and I am very grateful for this.

“We also continue to work closely with landlords and Bournemouth Borough Council as part of our joint commitment to the Boscombe Regeneration Partnership ‘Backing Boscombe’ campaign.

“As always, I would encourage anyone with information or concerns about alleged drugs offences to contact police in confidence.”

Some of the 24 people arrested have been charged and others have been released on police bail, pending further enquiries.
